Is there a question here somewhere, or do you plan on letting us all in on the conversation? Nice first post btw.

Yeah thanks, its a question. I really did not want to take up all one side of floor just to get to a damaged plank. I could rip bottom edge off and set grooves in glue. Just not sure on this one.

Re: Pergo Patch In Middle Of Large Floor, Treat It Like A Hardwood Patch?


The, only pergo that I have repaired was the original pergo that required glue on tongue and groove,, I'm talking about 1990's stuff ,,, after, that any click system laminate , even if glued back it would be hard for that, type of flooring to hold without one edge missing..

unless its the glue and strap type of installation laminate I would take it apart to the closest wall.

Pergo is a floating floor system. It expands/contracts with changes in humididty. You can not replace a piece in the middle. You have to remove to the nearest wall and re-install.

Best way.....from the nearest wall and pull it all up until you get to the damaged area.

Another way, if there's enough room between the edges and walls is something like this http://www.tools4flooring.com/crain-...ise-p-337.html
Cut out the bad planks and the rest of that horizontal row(s), separate the sections enough to lay new planks in and pull the sections back together. It does actually work, I've done it in a hallway so the sections weren't very wide. I wouldn't even try it in a big area but supposedly it works there also.

WRONG. Stick to what you know - this ain't it. I have been to more Pergo training seminars than I care to remember. A plank replacement can be done in less than 20 minutes.

You are correct OP in that you can rip the bottom of the groove off to allow the plank to drop in place. I use simple Tite-Bond for a joint adhesive. I have a neat little way of making clamps out of scrap wood, drywall screws, and hot glue that keeps the replacement plank and it's adjacent planks edges on plane until the adhesive sets. It is not required in every situation, depends on the floor.

OK. Thanks for the information. All I have to do now is know what I don't know and I won't make that mistake again.

Thanks PF didn't know you could replace a piece like that. I have always removed and replaced. You would just glue the new piece TO the existing then right? No glue on the floor itself, am I correct?

I could see that coming in handy for a few situations for the initial install as well. Would like to track one of those down, find out how much it costs.

Yeah Tite-Bond does seem to work well with this

Thanks Dennis. I didn't see the "find stores" on that page earlier. Appears I'll be visiting one of the local carpet stores here and see how much they want to order one.

Question

Re: Pergo Patch In Middle Of Large Floor, Treat It Like A Hardwood Patch?


So I've fallen for this tool by far and cannot wait to get my hands on one!!! I do have few questions, One does the board replacement that was demonstrated always go as smooth? Does the furniture need to be moved? I did notice the carpet display but he didn't really work the floor in that direction. Also the web site says-

One Tool - Many Uses
Replace flooring planks in center of a room, without cutting.
Close open floor joint gaps.
Install end pieces cut on an angle.
Fix sub-floor hollow spots.
Easier access to underlayment.
Easily check floor perimeter expansion gaps.


My question is what is a sub-floor hollow spot? I almost feel ignorant in asking this one as I feel I should already know but I don't and would like to know. My guess would be rotten subfloor but seems to me that if that was the case the laminate would be damaged as well?
